Christmas time

Merry christmas to all of you! I hope you are spending your holidays wiht you're loved ones. I am currently at my parents house in Germany where the Internet connection is soooo bad, that I am strugling to write this post. We have been going on a lot of one day trips, we've been baking and cooking, drinking tee and playing Wii and many card games, esspecially Pictionary. I watched some cool movies and cought up with all the magazines that my mum buys. I have also got some amazing presents, that I will write a post about as soon as I get back. I can't wait to get back home and start uploading more stuff on here, I am feeling very inspired and recharged. I have some cool things planned till New Years eve (my best friend's birthday, a cool girly get together and a new years party) so I will try to take as much photos as I can.
Have fun and enjoy the festive days!!!

Life hacks: You only know a part of me

I have never done a post like this, but I think it is the right time for me, to write something actually personal on here. I don´t really have a plan about what I am going to talk about in this personal series of posts that I decided to call Life hacks. Don't even know If this is going to end up being a frequent thing or not! I just feel like writing today, so that is what shall be done!

When I first started this blog thing I didn't really know what I wanted to do with it, I just liked the idea of it and everyone else was blogging, so that is what I wanted to do, as a hobby  or not even hobby more of a some sort of time consuming project of creating a blog. From the set up of the page to actual posts writing and content creating. I didn't even know how to start not even how to take good pictures or use Photoshop :) hahaha (still don`t)! I know there`s not a lot of people that really know about this blog, but I am really glad that the number is growing and that I can create content with that in mind. I really like the community that blogging is. Even I follow blogs that I am just a part of now. I love the idea of communicating through blogging and sharing ideas and advise. I have learned sooooo much from it and now one year in, I can`t imagine not blogging (even though I am not really frequent).

One thing, that I realised though, is that I don`t really share much of myself on here. Sure, you can see my style, my photos, my travels and my face but you don´t really know who I am or how I think!
You see the photos, I post, of people but don`t really know who they are or what they mean to me. So lets start!

Hi, nice to meet you! I´m Nina and here are some random facts about me:

1. I am quite an insecure person. That can sometimes seem as an arrogance thing (believe me, I´ve tried to get rid of the smirk face when I´m nervous or uncomfortable but it just won´t go away, that is just how I look like)

2. I know for the fact that I will write a book in my lifetime, even If it is going to be rubbish. I just know that I will!!

3. I live in Slovenia with my sister, but my parents and my younger brother live in Germany (I visit them quite a lot, that is why a whole bunch of posts is photos from different German cities)

4. I sometimes feel alone (but doesn´t everyone).

5. I really like to make up my own words for things or at least abbreviate things or talk in weird voices or made up slangs. It cracks me up every time!

6. I drive a car but I hate driving!

7.  Shopping makes me happy but sometimes it makes me depressed ?!?

8. I like jogging but then I also like salty crisps and cake.

9. I used to dance ballroom and Latin American dances ( for 9 years - that is why I always say that I am living a second life now, cause that used to be my life)

10. I would love to have a dog one day, but my parents got a dog now and for now that is enough.

11. I have to sing for at least half an hour a day on my own in my room to feel like I am relaxed and like I have achieved everything that day.

12. We had a break-in the day before yesterday and the first thing that I though of, when the police was looking for evidence was: "Thank good that I cleaned my room yesterday!" (who does that?)

13. If I would have all the money in the world, I would still like to work and have a job and travel and live a normal life, just without of the constant stress of, what if I don´t succeed.

14. I always buy silly things that are embarrassing. That is why all my key chains are cartoon figures, I own a leopard fur coat (that I wear only at home), I have a star wars laser tag under my bed, and all my cash purses are cats, ...

15. I hateeeee the sound of any kind of ringtones, I can´t stand them. My phone is always muted and I usually don´t answer because I don´t hear the phone.

I hope you guys enjoyed reading this post and I wish you all a nice day!

Winter make up look

This winter I am really enjoying wearing just a lip liner instead of lipstick on the whole lips. I am really liking the Revlon colorstay lip liner in the shade Plum. Whenever I wear a dark lip, I pair it with quite nude eyes. I have recently purchased Kiko's eyeshadow stick in the shade 05. 

For more details on how to create this look you can check out the video that I did!

Have a nice day!

MAX & Co event with Elle

Photo: Helena Kremelj

Recently I have been part of MAX & Co competition that was organized by the brand in cooperation with slovenian Elle. Contestants had to submit something that represents their style (a video, photos,..). I have submited a video that I made and also posted on this blog. I got into the final and didn't know what to expect. There were 10 finalists and we all had to make a styling from the brand's clothing items. I played with colour blocking and was quite pleased with the end result. The winner was a girl called Klara. She was dressed absolutely gorgeous and deserved to win. I had an amazing time and a great experience. Check out some more photos from the event: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.863214513723853.1073741896.529342377111070&type=1

Have a nice evening!

AUTUMN/WINTER inspired lookbook

I recently did make this video for a Max & co contest that got me into finals. I enjoyed making it, even though it was my first atempt at producing a video. I did make some mistakes that I will try to correct the next time I´m filming a video. But this is definitely something that I enjoy doing and would love to make more for you guys. If you have any suggestions, let me know!

Have a nice day!

The 5 books I want to read right now!

1. Lena Duham's Not that kind of girl
2. Gone girl by Gillian Flynn
3. Girl boss by Spohia Amoruso
4. The woman I wanted to be by Diane von Furstenberg
5. Is everyone hanging out without me? Mindy Kaling

I'm obsessed with books at the moment and after looking through my wishlist  I can't help but notice that all of them contain a word girl/woman in the title (except the Mindy Kaling one, but it's still quite a girly cover). So these are my current books on the wishlist (christmas hint to my mother!!!) :).

Have a nice day!

A woman's perfume tells more about her than her handwriting

I really wanted to make a post about my fragrances for quite some time now. Since I usually get my perfumes as gifts, I really don't know much about them at the beginning. I don't like to have many bottles of perfumes standing on my side table and I'm not that kind of girl that would always choose a different perfume to try out. When it comes to perfumes, I like to stick to the ones that I truly like the scent of and have through time became my classics. Speaking of that there has been (for now) only one of them that stood out to me and has been repurchased, ever since I first laid my eyes on it (or should I say my nose) and that is Versace's crystal Noir. I'm not saying that I don't like the other fragrances. They are just new scents to me and were not yet repurchased.
Marc Jacobs Oh Lola
Burberry Brit
Thierry Mugler's Angel 
Versace Crystal Noir is probably my favourite one of all perfumes and the one scent that I have been wearing the most. It is quite a full oriental/floral enhanced scent that is probably not everyones cup of tea. I have been wearing it for at least 6 years know, and it is a scent that my friends recognize me the most for.
